Abstract

In this paper, we propose a technique of artificial intelligence called
adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for canceling maternal
electrocardiogram (MECG) in fetal electrocardiogram extraction (FECG).This
technique is used to estimate the MECG present in the abdominal signal of a
pregnant woman. The FECG is then extracted by subtracting the estimated
MECG from the abdominal signal. Performance of the proposed method in terms
of mean square error, signal to noise ratio is compared with neural network. Our
results show that this method is a simple and powerful means for the extraction of
FECG.
